Sometimes we have to take a step back to the past…
We have a wonderful property close to the lake Miekojärvi – just perfect to jump into the water after sauna or for training the dogs in winter on the frozen lake. BUT during spring we always have a problem with high water, so that we often can´t use the toilet in the house. The ground water level becomes so high that the waste water gets pressed back into the house…NOT funny!
And what is the easiest solution to that problem (there are no problems only challenges)?
A traditional outhouse/privy. We used the simple solution with a bucket and a separator which separates the urine from the shit – that helps to reduce the smell. And it´s actually working! No strange smells, nice and clean.
